Basil Seed Drink with Honey vs. Kombucha with Algae and Chia Seeds
I was at a market in Oakland, California and found a drink called "Basil Seed Drink with Honey". There were black seeds suspended in the bottles. It looked interesting, so I purchased one.
I don't remember ever seeing a drink with seeds in it, but later that day I was at a different supermarket and saw a bottle of Kombucha with green algae and chia seeds floating in it. I bought it for a taste test comparison.
The Taste Test
The flavor of the basil seed drink was unusual. It was a bit sweet and tasted like honey. The ingredients included "artificial flavor".
The kombucha wasn't sweet. I've had other kombucha that was drinkable, but we couldn't finish this bottle.
None of the four or five of us that tried them liked either of these drinks, but the basil seed drink was unanimously judged to be a little better than this kind of kombucha.
Has anyone seen other interesting drinks with seeds floating in them? The concept is interesting, but so far I haven't found one that I like.
